Ascent Trip Report

Very steep 4 wheel drive track from the saddle up the spine to the summit. So easy to follow but steep. Checked the prominence with GPS and despite the contours implying it might push up near 300 foot it actually is barely over 200 foot so it turns out to be just another extra credit peak near a big prominence peak (its subpeak) but if you are out to grab the 1k peak this is easy exercise extra credit next to it off the same saddle.
